Central Waters Brewing Co.

This drink's name says it all - "Pretty Fly for a Maple Rye". The imperial stout balances the spicy characteristics of malted rye with a touch of sweetness from brown sugar and real Wisconsin maple syrup. Central Waters is brewed in Amherst, known for being environmentally sustainable, and has a taproom just for tastings! 

 

Stevens Point Brewery

Just can't wait for the Point Bock Run? Now you don't have to by grabbing a Point Bock Beer this season. With toasty malt sweetness, full-bodied flavor, and a rich roasted aroma, you're gonna want to grab this drink while you can! Stop in the Point Brewery for a tour and tasting or check out their Point Patio when the weather warms up. 

 

Sunset Point Winery

For a sweeter taste, grab a glass of the Blackberry Midnight wine at Sunset Point Winery. Take a seat in the swinging chairs in the tasting room and sip on a tasty glass that is merlot infused with blackberries that produce an easy-drinking sweet red wine. 

 

O'so Brewing Co.

Try one of the latest releases from O'so Brewing - the Narcissist. They offer two options, one being aged in bourbon the other in rye whiskey. Don't wait to try these great drinks, head over to their expansive taproom and pair one an O'so beer with live music, comedy, trivia, and other fun events.

 

McZ's Brewpub

Made for the winter season, take a sip from a Brown 25 North from McZ's Brewpub. The drink is a delicious brown ale with a sweet blend of rich malts and hops. Surround yourself with the warm ambiance at McZ's and don't forget to try one of their mouthwatering pizzas!
